This soup is heavenly. I have made several changes, it makes it so much easier--I just melt some butter and sautee' the hamburger, MINCED onions (if my teenagers see an onion, they revolt), carrots, and celery in a pan, bring the broth to a boil in a big pot (I use more than is called for) and throw in FROZEN FRENCH FRIES to boil for a few minutes--they cook quickly, they are delicious, it is so much less work, AND when I called this soup "cheeseburger and french fries soup", all the teenagers gobbled it up, and they loved it--they would not have tried it otherwise. When the french fries have boiled for a few minutes, I throw in the sauteed meat and veggies and let them all bubble together for a few minutes more. I warm two cups (or more) of half and half, and shake it up with 1/2 cup or so of flour--add it to the bubbling brew, and it thickens instantly. (Add a little cornstarch in water if it is not thick enough). Then I add the cheese and the sour cream. Everyone at my house shouts for joy when they smell this cooking...and I never have leftovers to pack for my lunch!
